Additional Complaint Information
The BBB has received a pattern of customer complaints alleging customer service issues. Complaints allege consumer’s calls and emails go unanswered.
On Monday, January 28, 2013, the company responding with the following:
We have been battling a huge insurgence of goods that were improperly sold in the US by unauthorized liquidators in late 2011 that customers believe have a warranty. We've increased staff (nearly double) to try to handle this volume, updated our call center software and equipment to better handle the unexpected traffic, and we are doing our best to try to help customers that have purchased our products through improper channels. Regretfully, this has also impacted some legitimate customers that have had some trouble getting through our system and caused some frustration. We continue to be committed to getting the service levels back to normal immediately.
The Better Business Bureau reached out to the business on for an update on December 13, 2013 regarding the concerns mentioned above.
We received the following updating information:
Velocity Micro licensed their brand to another company, FoxConn, to sell android tablets. The manufacturer opened a Virginia company called “Velocity Micro Electronics” for the purpose of selling these tablets, which has long closed. FoxConn hired this company to also handle the phone support. The company was to be paid per unit shipped. Ultimately, the business relationship between Velocity Micro, Inc. and FoxConn was breached. FoxConn distributed 250,000 tablets into the market and left. This company had no liability for the products because the contract was breached. The last tablets referencing a 1 year warranty with Velocity Micro Electronics were shipped in June of 2012. The company has had no choice but to change from phone center support to email only support now, since the tablets were shipped nearly 18 months ago and any warranty period would be over. In addition, no authorized retailer sold any tablets since that time, and the only place to find them now is from companies that bought them on liquidation and without warranty from us. At this time, the company does not have any replacement units to assist consumers.
